  • The story of Belo Horizonte goes through there. Essential place to know the bases of the founding of the city.

  • I think the location great for walking, and the Museum is quite interesting. Next has a restaurant (coffee Museum) which is very good.

  • The Museum is a must for all belo-horizontino and picturesque to visitors. It is a late 19th-century mansion, fully preserved, the time preceding the Foundation of BH. Meet this big house, completely surrounded by the city is very interesting! The place has rooms decorated with themes on the history of the city and is surrounded by a beautiful garden. Recommend visitors, yet he also pass in another room in the Museum (below and to the side of the map of BH) and see the beauty of the teatro municipal of BH (which today no longer exists). There the visitor has access to images and the original design of the theater, in waxed paper in color! Pretty cool.
